11 West Road
West Road Concert Hall is one of Cambridge’s premier music venues. Ideally situated only minutes’ walk from the famous Cambridge Backs and King’s College, it is renowned for its superb acoustic qualities.<
Three Cottenham choirs: TongueTwisters, VoxPop and bigMouth. They all rehearse and perform separately, coming together on occasions to form the award-winning group, singing a mix of rock and Rutter, jazz and Jenkins, folk and funk.
children are aged between 4 and 11 who meet to rehearse a varied repertoire – with the emphasis on ‘singing for fun’ – on Saturday lunchtimes. As well as performing locally, they are veterans of the Music for Youth festival (in which they reached the finals). They have been lucky enough to perform at Symphony Hall, Birmingham and just recently were the children’s choir in Carmina Burana at the Royal Albert Hall.
is the older brother/sister to TongueTwisters. They meet on Thursday evenings to sing an eclectic mix of often bespoke arrangements, off the peg songs and even specially-commissioned originals. They are veterans of the Music for Youth festival (in which they reached the finals). They have also performed at West Road Concert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Festival Hall, London.
—-“A very musical and accomplished group!” (*)—-(*judges comments re VP)
started in response to parents of the younger groups and has blossomed into a fine and dedicated collective of like minds. They meet each Thursday night and, like a fine wine, they improve with age. Post rehearsal, they decamp to the kitchen for a glass of woeful plonk, which does not.
Saffron Walden Building Society Community Choir
was started in response to a request from someone who heard TyrannoChorus. It has grown enormously since starting in 2012, singing their hearts out on Friday lunchtime and performing at a number of formal functions, impressing the directors of the Building Society.
Humming & Notes
is a primary school choir from Harston & Newton Primary school. They sing at lots of school events and in the community and have also reached the finals of the Music for Youth Festival. They have performed in Birmingham Symphony Hall and at the Corn Exchange as part of Britten’s Friday Afternoons project. Part of the choir also performed along with Tongue Twisters recently as the children’s choir in Carmina Burana at the Royal Albert Hall.
Junior Prime Brass (JPB)
began in 2010 as a quintet for the children and pupils of Prime Brass and in 2011 developed into a brass dectet. The players, who are aged 15 to 18, are current or past members of the Cambridgeshire County Youth Orchestra and Wind Orchestra. Within the ensemble there are members of Aldeburgh Young Musicians, the Royal College of Music Junior Department, the Junior Academy of the Royal Academy of Music, Britten Sinfonia Academy and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. JPB gives regular performances in King’s College Chapel and West Road Concert Hall. They have also appeared in the National Festival of Music for Youth in Birmingham and at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Primary Proms series.
